If you enjoy being outside, painting realistic landscapes, then this is the class for you! Landscape painter, Chris Taulbee will teach you what you need to know to paint realistic landscape paintings. You will be learning the style of painting called Plein Air, used by the Impressionist painters. Plein Air is painting outdoors on location and capturing the way light reflects to create an array of colors.
The first and last class of the session will be held indoors at the arts center. All other classes will take place outdoors, painting natural landscapes, weather permitting. On the first night of class, students will learn where the outdoor offsite classes will be held. Participants need to bring their own paints, brushes, etc. Use ANY painting mediums desired; watercolor, oil, acrylic, or gouache.
Classes are held on Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. ArtsConnect Arts Center is located at 9158 Winton Road, the building behind the Springfield Township Fire Station.
